    Pros

    The people as well as provided the opportunity and responsiblility to lead and manage my department and team without being micromanaged by senior management! The opportunity to work across all LOB's within the company with all levels of associate including the President.

    Cons

    The company is not very forward thinking, and does not invest in the neccessary technology or IT staff to be as competitive in their markets.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Lebhar-Friedman.

    Interview

    The interview was done over the phone as my immediate manager was located out of state. It was a mixture of a resume run-down and a conversation. The interviewer took a lot of interest even with off-resume items I mentioned as they were relevant to the job. A good deal of time was spent on explaining the company's business and what my role would be.

    Interview Questions

    • The most difficult question was about a few years' break in my job history (I went back to school and attempted a few art projects)   Answer Question
